TWO RIVERS GOLF CLUB
Results! We’ve got results! TRGC held its first
tournament for 2015 at Empire Ranch earlier in February. The weather
forecast was for a little morning fog followed by plenty of sun and
temperatures in the mid 60’s. Those who believed that forecast suffered
greatly; the sun never appeared and the temperature seemed to stay
around 50 degrees. The course was in great shape, however, and many of
our players shot some really good scores.

PACE OF PLAY
The length of rounds in our tournaments is always a
consideration, especially with the growth of our membership and the
increased number of participants in the tournaments. It only takes one
or two slow foursomes to affect the pace for all the players. We all
know the basics of keeping the pace of play up: play ready golf, limit
the number of practice swings to one or two, line up your putt while
another player is putting.
Another pace of play technique that really helps to
speed up play involves the best use of the golf cart. When the cart
reaches the first ball in the fairway, drop off the first player and
whatever clubs that player will need, then the second player can drive
to his or her ball (unless it’s straight ahead) and get ready to play
when the first player has hit. The first player can make the short walk
to the cart while the second player is getting ready to hit. The proper
use of the carts can make a huge difference in the group’s pace of play
without anyone feeling rushed.
At least one person in each foursome should assume
the role of moving the group along and keeping up with the foursome
Let’s keep a good thought for continued good health
for our members in 2015. Nick Schiaretti and Zach Peart were at the
Empire Ranch tournament (Zach finished in the money!), both looking well
